Priest generally starts off a new rotation in poor or just straight up bad position then they will get some stupidly powerful AoE or something that pushes res priest or something to top tier and everyone and their mother will complain about them thats just how priest tends to go, It is very rarely a good class its either very bad or very strong and when priest is wrong its probably the most complained about class, Same thing is likely to happen this year too its just when Blizzard decide to give priest that card or cards that put it back on that level.
This! I remember Yellorambo writing about Priest problems and the standard model (and core card sets) for Hearthstone and he explicitly stated that Priest has a weak core set. That, with the class inherently leaning towards control playstyles AND lack of any decent AoE forces Blizz to print some OP crazy shit that makes the class a bit too strong.
Looks like there is an actually decent Nomi Priest, and it doesn't even look to be a refined list yet.
Streamer memes does not equal a decent deck. Brawl or twisting nethers is a hard loss. I have to admit it's unfornate tard warrior is so unbalanced and decks autolose to it. I played my mechacthun priest vs a very greedy tard warrior with greenskin, upgrade, and leeeroy in his deck. I emptied my deck with 4 hp left. I think I was hit in the face by minions twice but 40-45 free dmg is 40-45 free dmg(not including his blastmaster turn).
Going 7-0 is nothing to scoff at, though I agree it is a small sample. The deck is definitely not strong against Bomb warrior, but as long as the meta isn't 40% bomb warrior, you could have a really good win rate vs everything else.
